Elton John’s husband, David Furnish, confirmed that Los Angeles will be the end of the road for U.S. performances.
In referencing the Dodger Stadium shows, Furnish said, “It’s the end of the North American part of the tour, and he will not be touring that part of the world ever again.”
The legendary singer will be 76 soon, and he’s finally ready to retire.
John said in a recent statement, “I’m looking forward to doing it and going out on the high that we were on. At the moment I finish, supposedly in 2023, in the summer, by which time I’ll be 76, and that’s it, baby. I can’t wait to do it and have a great time, and I can’t wait to finish and say, ‘No more – I’ve had enough.'”
After the Los Angeles shows, Furnish confirmed that John has a few more stops to make. “Then he has to do some shows in Australia and New Zealand and then make up the shows he couldn’t do in September through December.”
Eleven shows have been added to the tour, beginning on July 24 in New Jersey. John will also perform at the Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles on November 17, 19, and 20.
“Thank you for sharing this journey with me,” John said in his announcement video. “I cherish these memories we’re making together. It has been nothing short of incredible, and I look forward to seeing you soon, one last time on my Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour.”
John continued the Yellow Brick Tour in January after the shows had been on a two-year pause due to the pandemic. He will continue to perform throughout the U.S. through April before heading to Europe. After his Dodger Stadium performances, he’ll head overseas again for another series of concerts.
Elton John will never perform again once the Yellow Brick Tour is concluded in 2023. For ticket information visit www.eltonjohn.com.
